  • The Mystical Element of Religion as Studied in Saint Catherine of Genoa and Her Friends

Public domain; available on - (vol 1 & vol 2

Might try to do a PB of this but I've got too many stacked up to do at the moment so if there's any interest internally in works by von Hügel, this would be a good one to put at the top of the list.

Others by him to make up a von Hügel collection:

  • The Life of Prayer
  • Letters to a Niece
  • Essays and Addresses on the Philosophy of Religion
  • Christianity and the Supernatural
  • Eternal Life: A Study of Its Implications and Applications
  • Selected Letters, 1896-1924
  • Spiritual Counsels and Letters of Baron Friedrich von Hügel

Baron Friedrich von Hügel (1852-1925) was a self-taught biblical scholar and linguist. He is often mentioned alongside John Henry Newman as one of the most influential Catholic thinkers of his day. Baron von Hügel was deeply engaged in theological discussions with a wide group of scholars associated with the turn-of-the-century Modernist controversy. His scholarly concerns included the relationship of Christianity to history, ecumenism, mysticism, the philosophy of religion, and the rejection of much of the immanentism in nineteenth-century theology. Under Pope Pius X, prompted by conservatives such as Cardinal Rafael Merry del Val, there was a backlash against many of the Modernist thinkers, and von Hügel attempted to negotiate a middle way of restraint, while remaining true to the principles of intellectual rigour and free enquiry.
